Trump’s Focus on Muslims Distracting Him from Campaign Against Mexicans, Supporters Fear / Borowitz

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—There are growing fears among supporters of the Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump that his new focus on Muslims is distracting him from his campaign against Mexicans.

After the billionaire said he would consider shutting down mosques if he were President, supporters expressed concern that such signature proposals as a wall with Mexico and mass deportations were being lost in the shuffle.

Carol Foyler, who viewed a recent Trump appearance on television, said that she was “alarmed” to hear him talk about closing mosques “without mentioning the wall with Mexico even once.” “I just worry, I guess, that with all of this talk about Muslims he’s really forgetting about Mexicans,” she said. “It feels kind of like a bait-and-switch.”
Another Trump supporter, Harland Dorrinson, agreed. “Shutting down the mosques is a great idea, sure, but he shouldn’t do that if it’s going to divert resources from forcibly deporting eleven million immigrants,” he said. “I would be very sad to see that happen.”

But Tracy Klugian, a die-hard Trump volunteer who is working for his campaign in Iowa, called such criticism of her candidate “misguided.” “You don’t get to be a successful businessman like Donald Trump without being able to multitask,” she said.

After today's developments:
Borowitz tweet today:
Dear Donald Trump: Heard your idea about registering Muslims and tracking their movements. You might want to tweak it a little so it doesn't sound EXACTLY like something the Nazis did.

The NRA is beginning to connect some dots. Cartoon image to prove it.

How about posting some photos you did not use for the subject "Eleven"

I was (still am) all over the map with the topic, and maybe by posting a few we did not use we can inspire others to find an entry:

If we could properly zero in to see the little bitty photos it is made up from, you would see thousands and thousands of shots of the pride of male anatomy, also called "Dicks".

So sad: A hero of mine whose music I adore dies in Spain. Allen Toussaint, Legend of NOLA

NEW ORLEANS — Allen Toussaint, the legendary songwriter, producer, arranger and performer hailed by the Grammys, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and musicians and fans worldwide as one of the most influential figures in New Orleans music, died Monday while on tour in Europe, his family confirmed. He was 77.

Toussaint was on tour in Spain and died after performing Monday. Having performed frequently in his hometown over the past several weeks, Toussaint left Thursday on a tour that was to include stops in Madrid, Belgium and London, according to his Facebook page.

An Associated Press report said Toussaint died after suffering a heart attack after a concert where he performed in the Spanish capital at the Lara Theater.

"Madrid emergency services spokesman Javier Ayuso says rescue workers were called to Toussaint's hotel early Monday morning and managed to revive him after he suffered a heart attack." Toussaint, however, stopped breathing during the ambulance ride to a hospital and efforts to revive him again were unsuccessful.
